Tuono.......my piles are killing me riding this
People amaze me.Every year manufacturers bring out a SO CALLED new model and people are like WOW,I'LL SELL A KIDNEY TO HAVE THATor NOT MUCH DIFFERENT TO SUCH AND SUCH.
Why the amazement?Because people can't see the forest for the trees,in other words they should have learned by now that bike manufacturers are sly,sensing that bike design is or has just about reached its zenith,they bring out models like this TUONO.The ideas drying up,its time to cash in and MILK the exsisting designs for all they can,giving the punters an actual stripped down RSV4 race bike. Rejigged fuelling,bit o' this,bit o' that and hey presto we'll call it a naked street bike,so much better than the rest,yes and we'll have a new model in our line up,the buying public will never know.
Come on!Iknow you try to extract and exploit a design as possible but there is a limlit.Ducati hsa done the same along with numerous other manufacturers.Instead of re-tooling and redesigning(as this wouldn't be feasible,especailly now-a-days)they re-hash,strip down a race rep,a bit of this,bit of that.......ta da new bike!
AT least change the riding position,footpegs,seat(especalliy)as the TUONO looks as if it'll break your back ridden anywhere other than the local highstreet.
Nice bike but looks TOO much the stripped RACE REP TOO BE STREET WISE!!SORRY!!!
